With the advent of information and communication technology
and globalization, there is a pressing need to develop a better understanding
on leadership theories and performance in organizations that would enable organizations
not only to survive but more importantly to advance and prosper. The focus of
this study is to identify the best style of leadership theory for a better performance
in an organization. Earlier studies on leadership theories and performances
in organizations were analysed and these are the data for this present study.
The conclusion garnered from the literature showed that transformational leadership
style is deemed as the best style for organizational performance due to an ever
increasing support of this theory in numerous studies.
